League tells Griffin he can’t cover Nike logo

The word of the day for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is “cover.”

The good news is that he’s on the East Coast cover of Sports Illustrated. The bad news is that Griffin will get a talking-to from the NFL about covering up the Nike logo on his warmup gear.

According to Darren Rovell of ESPN.com, Griffin wrote the word “heart” on his pre-game undershirt, with an “H” that blocked the Nike logo. Griffin has an endorsement deal with adidas.

Rovell writes that Griffin likely won’t be fined because it happened before the game. But the league plans to make its point to Griffin clearly and plainly.

“It won’t happen again,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told Rovell.

You can’t blame Griffin for trying. The league already has changed the rules to allow him to apply a “III” on his name plate. Why not push the envelope to see if they’ll let him get away with covering up the logo of the company that is paying the NFL plenty of money, but that isn’t paying Griffin a dime?

That said, it would have made more sense to find a thick piece of white tape and cover the logo that way.

Stop Hating.

Warmup gear? Is it really that serious? fu*kin tired of the NFL's garbage. Let these players make their money. I swear they treat them like a bunch of children and wonder why people hate Goodell's administration.

Nike is paying the NFL which subsequently pays Dan Snyder who happens to be paying RG3 20 million. Yeah Nike's not giving RG3 checks but he's making money from them.

The NFL isn't wrong here. It's a simple uniform policy to follow. League rules have always took place over endorsements.

I could be wrong but I think Adidas is larger company world wide so maybe he saw the potential of more money

RG3 works for the NFL... If he doesn't like it then he should go start up his own league?
, I am definitely a believer of RG111. I waited for the hype to die down and to see him play in a real NFL game to see how he handled the transition from college.... A+.

Nike sponsors the league. You can't cover up their logo cause they are the league's sponsors. What's so hard to understand about that?

You really think that Adidas is a larger company than Nike?

You just have to take in consideration all of what Nike has compared to Adidas.

All of Nike's superstar endorsements>>>> Adidas' superstar endorsements.

Not to mention Nike is huge in Golf, Tennis, and plenty of other sports that Adidas doesn't even have products for or just doesn't compete with them in those products.

Nike favors the American sports but Adidas is the stronger brand globally.
